NSA Member Paula Whitbread-Roberts‘ current exhibition of paintings Sanguine is available to view online as the proposed opening at the Jupiter Gallery in Newlyn has been postponed for the second time due to lockdown restrictions.
The majority of the work has been produced since the first lockdown and represents her immediate environment, early morning and evening walks around the lake and quiet moments of contemplation in her garden. Paula explains about the thought processes behind her work:
My paintings invariably have a narrative and reflect my thought processes at any given time. The images within the paintings evolve from personal experiences, observations, many hours of wakefulness spent reading, walking, swimming in the sea and pools and are very much interpretations of my imagination..
During strange times and unusual circumstances, we are forced to think deeply about life, with perhaps melancholy thoughts sometimes beginning to emerge. A true sense of perspective simmers just beneath the surface of the mind or maybe thoughts are extruded from deep within the psyche…
